to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. chris: but john boehner is holding firm against one of the president's main campaign pledges. >> everyone wants to get our economy moving again, everyone wants to get more americans back to work again. raising tax rates will slow down our ability to create the jobs that everyone says they want. chris: in your book, the price of politics, a heck of a book. you talk about how debt negotiations fell apart the last time, we tried it in the summer of 2011. will the speaker, we just saw, have the strength to lead his party even if he has to fight for the tea party? >> their camouflage is tax reform and they're going to do that over time. so the rates could come down. the really interesting thing is when you examine the detail of this, last year they were close. they actually could have worked out some agreement and it blew up because of the president asking for more revenue and that was the limit for them. i think it is a moment of necessity to a certain extent. they can't avoid this now. chris: reporting challeng
romney in a minute, but first listen to what john boehner said after the election. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. let's rise above the this function and do the right thing for our country. >> later john maynard told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person -- john boehner told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person in washington and the president knows that. the fiscal cliff looms at the end of the year. will we reach a compromise before then, charles? >> i do not think it will be a comprehensive compromise. i think they will be able to patch something together. i think they will be able to agree on it true tax reform sometime next year. i think they will get passet the cliff if -- the cliff. if he insists on raising rates, he will be stymied. >> what is the message? >> it is a mixed message. i think we all agree the corner stone of the president from message is we raise taxes on those earning over $250,000. mitt romney pledged toepea obamacare. these are the esse
to retire. i think mr. john boehner wants to work out a deal. i really do. he has to get through. kantor and some of the others on the extreme right. -- eric cantor and some of those on the right. i do not like the extremism. it is not helpful to the country at all. host: thank you for the call. we read this at the top of the program. on our twitter page, there is this -- nancy cook puts it this way. "game of chicken." her answer, probably not. george is on the phone from the line for republicans. caller: i just think when the voters spoke on the past election that we as citizens are being shortchanged. we vote our -- our constituents voted for representatives, but we are not being represented. in the last 30 days of the campaign, i decided to be an independent. i was not convinced everybody was being fairly treated with the tax cuts. therefore, i believe speaker john boehner, rip cantor, reid, and the president to sit down and realize we elected them to look out for our best interests. what we do not get that, you get the backlash you got on the last election. host: a couple of other op
and house speaker john boehner. and analysis from the national journal. last night and democrats held on to their senate majority. harry reid talked about the election results. we will hear from republican john bellair. -- john boehner. >> i am glad to be back. it was a late night, early morning. to it is clearly we're going increase our majority. but the results show a number of things. a number of things for certain. one is that we're the party of diversity. look at the results from all over the country. i'm looking forward to working with so many great accomplished centers. i have talked to virtually everyone of them. when i came to the senate, barbara mikulski was it as far as women. now one-third of our caucus is women. the remarkable work done by all these great centers to be. but the election is over and we have enormous challenges ahead of us. they're right here. and we have to sit down and go to work on it now, not wait. this was the message the american people sent from all over and that is they're tired of these partisan gridlocks. they're tired of things like i have one go
and you can't -- you can't tax them anymore. don't put too much faith into what john boehner had to say yesterday. it was an opening but not a done deal yet. >> yeah. >> bill: kala is in valdosta, georgia. hi kayla. >> bill: great victory huh? >> caller: i actually fell in above with barack obama in 2004 at the dnc. i was a sophomore in high school. [ laughter ] >> bill: good for you. >> caller: i was actually living in ohio at the time. i said that man's going to be the first black president of the united states. i got my butt laughed off. >> bill: you never fell out of love with him. >> no. i ran georgia southern students for barack obama in 2008. >> bill: wow! yeah. >> caller: i'm -- i'm 24 now and i'm black and i'm a female and he's for education. he's for helping people helping themselves and i think that's what the republican party and those that vote that way don't understand. he doesn't want to give out handouts. he wants to give a hand up. there's a big difference in that until the republican pa
with john boehner, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. is he planning on sitting down with those two republican leaders any time soon? is the white house saying? >> reporter: there's nothing announced for a leaders meeting so far. but i am certain, wolf, that that will be coming because there's such important negotiations ahead. i'm told that the president's conversation with speaker boehner was courteous, it was brief. and i'm told that they also discussed the importance of keeping their public statements vague or general enough so that they leave themselves enough private negotiating room to get a deal done to avoid the fiscal cliff, wolf. >> that's probably smart too. thanks very much for that, jessica. let's dig a little bit deeper right now with our chief political analyst gloria borger. isn't his responsibility right now though to take the first step, offer a proposal to boehner, to mcconnell, to the republicans? we assume that the democrats, nancy pelosi would go along and harry reid would go along with the president. >> well, i think as jessica's saying, the president bel
. look, i think the white house was pleasantly surprised and open to what john boehner said. i mean, obviously, they appreciated what they thought was a very thoughtful and well thought out position that speaker boehner made publicly about where he sees the negotiations, where he's publicly putting out there where he's willing to move for now. obviously, everything's in negotiation, everything's a little bit of posturing. but it certainly was a much different tone, for instance, than what came out of mitch mcconnell's office office the election, and we've plowed through that plenty. i think what you're going to see now is the white house wants to attack a little bit of time, be thoughtful how public -- what they say publicly versus how much maneuverer ability is there. the other unnamed player is chuck shumer. chuck schumer publicly said i like simpson bowls in the it made an effort but i don't like what they're trying to do with taxes. we can't do this with tax reform. taxes should go up. he wants to move the negotiating position on the democrats in a little bit of a different dire
, the speaker of the house telling his troops to fall in line. could john boehner face another revolt? >>> first, we go back to florida, ground zero for head counts and election nights with no winners, again? this is msnbc. ♪ [ male announcer ] the way it moves. the way it cleans. everything about the oral-b power brush is simply revolutionary. oral-b power brushes oscillate, rotate and even pulsate to gently loosen and break up that sticky plaque with more brush movements than manual brushes and even up to 50% more than leading sonic technology brushes for a superior clean. oral-b power brushes. go to oralb.com for the latest offers. >>> from his ranch in crawford, texas, governor bush voiced his objections to a third recount of ballots in florida. >> we've had one count and then we had another count. and fortunately, we won both counts. >> by going to court, bush is hoping to insure his lead in florida unofficially a 327-vote marnellen doesn't change in tallahassee today, former secretary of state, james baker, repeated his argument that hand-counting is subjective and unreliable and he accu
. john boehner making comments that they also want to work together. but, again, this is the choice that we have been talking about over the last several months. spending cuts, tax increases. >> we should mention that we're also more renewed fears in europe, the greek debt crisis rearing its ugly head. >> absolutely. it's clear that greece cannot pay its bills. now we're thinking, okay, this is another pressure for the u.s. economy. so we're all waiting on some kind of compromise out of washington as well as some stability in europe. but for sure, we'll probably see some volatility going forward. doesn't really mean much, though, long-term. >> i was going to say, let's get some perspective. there was a huge drop after the president's election four years ago. but over the last four years, wall street has been up. >> that's right. over the long-term, you have to look at fundamentals. and the corporate sector right now is very strong. a lot of cash on the balance sheets, longer term earnings should be okay. but over the near term, expect some choppiness. >> maria, thank you. and i know
'm encouraged that speaker boehner is making some conciliatory comments. >> stephanie: here is john boehner yesterday. >> there is a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to any challenges that we all face as a nation. >> stephanie: now? now you are going to try to work -- this just make you shake your head having been in the trenches there for the last few years. >> it does. one thing that will change the dynamic is for all of those in the gop leadership who's soul reason for being seem to be denying the president to second term, stop him from accomplishing anything if they could. obviously that motivation is gone. so hopefully that will make them a little more willing to come to the table. i was a little bit struck by something when the speaker talked about this being the president's moment -- the president's time. it seemed to me that this is a shared responsibility. he should be saying, rather it's our time to come together and make this happen rather than we're going to wait for you, mr. president.
%? this is a very clear issue and the first challenge for john boehner. 90% vs. 2%. he is -- they have sided with 2%. can he get them to give 90% of americans a tax break? if not, the republican party is in more trouble. >> ami sheree this order -- editorial saying that the republicans have no foothold in -- and little room to negotiate and the president will drive a bargain. >> it would have to say this. republicans are not dealing from strength. they were in 2010 when they elected 63 tea party freshman and i could block or pass anything they wanted. john boehner was to admit that they do not win and if they do not when you are not dealing with a position of strength. president obama is. >> 1042 to five days until the next presidential election. host: hillary clinton would be the best prepared candidate. one who has lived in the u.s. senate, a woman who knows virtually every head of state in the world and is a strong opinion of the inclusion of -- social inclusion. i come close but will not talk about that until hillary -- people decide what to do. >> what is your decision making process moving fo
